"The Candy Store," a radio drama by Nahum Stutchkoff.

This week Gems is a classic episode of Nahum Stutchkoff's 'Round the Family Table. Originally broadcast in 1939, the episode is an homage to Rabbi Rubin's real-life Yiddish court of the air, which in ran New York from the late-1930s to 1956. In Stutchkoff's fictional rendering, the judge (played by Stutchkoff himself) weighs the case of a pauperized father who has come to plead for support from his wealthy children.
